We visited Idyllwild for the first time recently and stayed at Strawberry Inn on an Amazon Local coupon. We were very happy with the old house that has been turned into a lovely inn. It is amply decorated in an eclectic country style and the common room has many cozy places to sit with books and games available. There is... More

I read the reviews before I purchased a weekend here but I thought the people were just over reacting and maybe "needy". Not so, I was wrong they were right!! Wow, if you're going to run a B&B at least be somewhat nice and available!! I was excited the Maggie room was available so I purchased 2 nights. This is... More

Room was worn out yet clean. The common area interior was cluttered yet clean. The exterior grounds were lacking yet clean. The breakfast was tasty yet small portioned. No surprise I will search a better value, accommodations.

Idyllwild has always been rustic in its hotel accommodation in keeping with the outdoorsy character of the town---mostly little pine cabins and lodges made from wood. Strawberry Inn is a redwood shingled lodge with varied size guest rooms, nice trees, decks, a hammock, chickens in a classy coop, rustic benches and chairs, plenty of birds in the trees, and a...

We have been to Idyllwild several time and tried a new spot, Strawberry Creek Inn. I emailed Rodney several time and appreciated his response each time. We stayed in the Evergreen Room, nice and comfortable. You definitely felt like being in the mountains. Both breakfasts were very good. The lodge is old and could use some cleaning up. The innkeepers... More

Since May 2013, when I come to Idyllwild, a small mountain town located on San Jacinto Mountains of California, I stay in this unique, special, small B&B, run by the lovely owners, Ian&Rodney. It may be because it looks like one of the houses in my childhood fairytale stories, I love to stay here. If you google it you will... More

My husband and I came for the weekend and enjoyed the chance to get away together. The Inn was comfortable and cozy, located on the edge of the small artsy town of Idyllwild. We liked the hammocks, the chicken coop on the property, and the path along the stream that led into town. The main house is open 24/7 and... More

Disappointed with the lack of enthusiasm from the owners. We felt like a number, not a guest. I would rather give my money to someone who appreciates it and is warm and welcoming. Place needs a good cleaning outside, quite unkept with lots of spider webs everywhere and dust on everything, overgrown weeds. It's like they just don't care anymore... More

Stayed here for two nights with my mother, it was divine! The two owners are very nice and accomodating hosts and their guesthouse is simply gorgeous! We felt right at home here, the decor is just beautiful, many different art pieces from different cultures and nations. We had the Evergreen room and it was a nice size room with a... More

and got the reservation (special discount) for a birthday present. The facility is large for a bed and breakfast with a big common area packed with curios, antiques and knick-nacks and a library area. It was fun to look at the fancy chickens out back and eat their fresh eggs. Our stay was comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was very... More
